Pikmin? I'd be so estatic to find Phantasy Star 1&2 it's not even funny, awesome pickup.

I got a Crash Bandicoot collector's edition for the PS1 today (no outer sleeve, and no case for Crash Team Racing, CTR was stuffed in the Crash Bash case) and LotR War of the Ring PC for $5 total.


Eerie! I just picked up a complete version(with slipcover) for $5. Everything is near mint too.

Niiice. I told them to hold on to it if the third case shows up, but I'm not holding my breath.

Didn't know that had any value. I have the straight-to-dvd sequel, Mewtwo Returns which looks to be worth about the same. I think it was the first DVD I got with my first DVD player (a PS2.) Heh.


Yea, Warners stopped making them a long time ago. They never even got regular DVD cases. They had a redone re-release a few years ago, but that one is OOP too.

Used, The First Movie is not super-valuable, only about $15 on Amazon. The prices on new copies fluctuates alot too. Currently, lowest price is $60, just before Christmas I sold a sealed copy for $80, and earlier in the year I had a sealed copy go for only $46. The three used copies I've sold have only netted between $13-16.

I see they are going for a bit more on eBay. Oh well...

The three used copies I've sold have only netted between $13-16.

Selling for $16 would be almost 3x my investment, so I wouldn't mind.

Picked up The Legend of Mana Music Selection CD for $3, looked around for the actual game, but couldn't find it (probably not donated). Deciding on whether or not to keep it, though I do like these limited pre-order bonus type deals.

Found this yesterday. It killed me to pay this much for anything at a thrift, but I couldn't leave it...

I almost jizzed my pants when I saw it, but when I saw the price I got pissed off. After about a hour of beating myself up (and trying to negotiate with 3 employes/managers at SAVERS) I ended up buying it. I still need to test it as the batteries are dead.

It's alot to pay, but definitely worth it:

Oh man what a find slowdive21. Like you said a bit pricey for a Savers, but I would love to own that also. I did find a crap load of trash pack toys in package for flipping purposes,
but would have been much happier finding your item

Wow, I actually found something decent at a thrift store this week. I have a big stack of CD's that I'm going to send off to a recycling place, but they have private/sensitive info on them, so I wanted to shred them first but my dinky little shredder can't do CD's. Luckily, I ended up finding a Fellowes DM12C shredder for $20 at the place down the street from my house. I thought it was a bit steep, so I ended up going home, but after looking it up and seeing that it retails for $100 more than the asking price, I went back the next day and picked it up. Unfortunately, the thing is disgusting and I can't fully clean it, so I doubt anyone will want to buy it when I'm done, but it is a freakin' beast.

It doesn't surprise me to see such a high price at Savers, they are just totally out of their mind when it comes to pricing. I've bought stuff there for a couple of bucks that I flipped for big money, and I've seen copies of Mario / Duckhunt for $15. It makes no sense to me at all. As for the Game and Watch, it's a good find since it's complete. I sold a loose one a few months ago for the same price you paid for this one complete. The game itself isn't a whole lot of fun, but it's a cool item none the less.

Recent thrift finds. Haven't seen decent video games in ages but I couldn't help grabbing this tangentially-related stuff.

Posted Image
Zelda Spirit Tracks LE guide & MGS 3 guide for $1 each. MGS3 is one of my top games evar and the guide has a foldout/poster type thing which is neat.

Posted Image
Little Pokemon plushes for $1 each (Kyogre, Ho-oh, Latios, and Mew.) These are from The Pokemon Company and for a buck each I couldn't resist. Ho-oh is my favorite, just look at 'im.

Posted Image
Finally, some DVD's. Avatar Book 2 for $5, Clone Wars vol. 2 and Ponyo for $3 each. I got CW vol. 1 at a garage sale years ago (yay) but it turns out I have Ponyo on :br: already, from Blockbuster I think.

Value Village is the only good one here. There are two Goodwills that have things every once in a while, but normally junk. Also a Salvation Army that never has anything good.

Went to Goodwill after work, it was 50% off media. I was like "its 530 there wont be sh1t left!". Saw some crap PS2 and Gamecube games that werent there last time so I figured the good games had been picked through. I ended up with MX Vs ATV Unleashed PS2 complete, Donkey Konga Gamecube complete, and an emerald Dualshock2 controller for $7.55.
